I forgot to mention that last week the company that runs the Santa enterprise at the mall called me to find out if I wanted to do it again this season.
But calling in June? Wow.
I guess if you run operations across the country you want to make sure early on there are not going to be problems.
I will be a natural bearded "helper" again this year. Ho! Ho! Ho!
By the way: The Good Looking One and I plan to go up to Lake Placid again this summer, and to stop by Santa's Workshop. If you've never been to the workshop, it's a wonderful old-style amusement park, with rides, animals (including reindeer), shows, and, of course, the Big Guy.
Pax et bonum
